A Little Business and a Give-Away

I've been getting asked about the fabric that I used in my Retro Clothespin Apron that is featured in the current issue of Quick Quilts Magazine (Issue #107). The collection is called "Just Dreamy" by My Minds Eye for Riley Blake Designs. Besides Quick Quilts, you can also find the pattern in the current issue of Quilt Magazine (Feb/Mar Issue #108) made in Oops-a-Daisy fabrics from Blanks Quilting. (The Quilt Magazine website also has up my Daisy Chain quilt pattern free download from issue #108).

For anyone who is having trouble finding the Just Dreamy fabric, I had enough to cut two Apron Kits and have made them available in my Etsy Store. I have to see if I can get a hold of any more Oops-a-Daisy fabrics to make kits for that one.

...And looking back I realized that I completely missed my one year blog anniversary on January 3rd, but this happens to be my 250th post...so just for fun we're having a give-away! In the nick of time to make a Valentines quilt, I'll choose one lucky winner to receive this Jelly Roll of Rouenneries by French General, just leave a comment on this post and I'll choose a random winner on Wednesday morning :)

Enjoy the day!

Congrats on #250. Your apron is adorable but I hate cooking would rather be sewing. I love your snowman block. I haven't started mine yet but will. Thanks for the opportunity to win a jelly roll of Rouenneries by French General. That fabric is beautiful.
